Another Apple Bowl, 9” X 4.25”. Same finish as the last. Love this wood for it’s colours, hardness, cracks and knots. On this bowl I have a sharp edge and a slight flare out on the lip, hope it may stop the bowl from being dropped someday.

Beautiful bowl John, and I like the clear “documentation” on the base.
Well done.

Awesome bowl John and again excellent finish. That apple does seem to want to crack, but it’s worth it.

Beautiful job, John. I sawed up an apple tree last year and tried to save a couple of crotch pieces, coating the cut ends with end cut, but the pieces all split. Have you any advice on how to preserve apple blanks?

Thanks everyone!

Bryan, I rough everything out as soon as I get it. I keep fresh blocks in plastic bags until I do. I never found a way to prevent splitting.

That is just beautiful. My wife would put that out on the table and threaten to kill anyone who touched it. :-)

Thanks again all, Brian after sanding I gave it a coat of BLO and then many light coats of clear gloss WOP.
